Visitor notice

Due to concerns over the further spread of Coronavirus and the well-being of our visitors, we regret to report that all Cadw unstaffed monuments and car parks with lockable gates will be closed from 5pm Monday 23 March until further notice. We do look forward to inviting people to once again enjoy these outstanding monuments as soon as we are able.


Solitary, strangely shaped Bronze Age monument

Probably erected at some point during the Bronze Age, this tall stone cuts a solitary figure standing alone amid fields on the outskirts of Holyhead. Measuring about 9ft/2.7m in height, the stone is notable for its unusual shape, seeming to twist around as it rises upwards from the ground.

Opening times

Daily 10am - 4pm

Last admission 30 minutes before closing

Closed 24, 25, 26 December and 1 January
